A grandfather is defending his 8-year-old grandson after the boy allegedly attacked his special education teacher.
It happened Friday at Mitchell Elementary School in Albuquerque.
Police said the student hit her with his feet, fist, and backpack sending her to the hospital. She has since been released.
The boy's grandfather said the boy has behavioral issues and acts out in the classroom environment. He said the boy just transferred to the school three weeks ago and said it was just a matter of time until the boy ran into trouble again.
School officials will only say they are investigating.
